Sun And Sewage Harnessed To Produce Hydrogen Fuel Using New Device
2013-10-11 12:03:49

University of California, Santa Cruz A novel device that uses only sunlight and wastewater to produce hydrogen gas could provide a sustainable energy source while improving the efficiency of wastewater treatment. A research team led by Yat Li, associate professor of chemistry at the University of California, Santa Cruz, developed the solar-microbial device and reported their results in a paper published in the American Chemical Society journal ACS Nano. The hybrid device combines a...

Water and some nano-structured iron oxide is all it takes to produce bubbles of solar hydrogen. EPFL and Technion scientists just discovered the champion structure to achieve this In the quest for the production of renewable and clean energy, photoelectrochemical cells (PECs) constitute a sort of a Holy Grail. PECs are devices able of splitting water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen in a single operation, thanks to solar radiation. "As a matter of fact, we've already discovered this...

Manganese Oxidation Played Key Role In Formation Of Oxygen On Earth
2013-06-27 07:25:47

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Oxygen is a necessary component for the survival of most terrestrial life on Earth. The planet´s atmosphere, however, did not always contain this life-sustaining substance. How and when oxygenic photosynthesis — the process responsible for producing oxygen on Earth through the splitting of water molecules — first began has been considered one of the great science mysteries of our planet. A new study, led by...

Long Island twins, who turned soybeans into clean energy, feel like they´re “on cloud nine” after the award announcement; Florida student winner says he´s won “the science lottery”. Wallingford, Conn. (PRWEB) June 11, 2013 Three talented high school seniors have won scholarships for designing renewable energy solutions that could solve a real-world problem, thanks to the Proton OnSite Scholarship and Innovation Program and its entrepreneur benefactor Tom...


Word of the Day
omadhaun
  • A fool; a simpleton: a term of abuse common in Ireland and to a less extent in the Gaelic-speaking parts of Scotland.
This word is partly Irish in origin.
